One of this year’s team goals is to put lots of up-front effort into planning. So we spent much of the build season’s second week continuing to design and prototype. Sub-teams have completed prototypes of a ball intake, a gear storage system, and a climbing winch. Students have also completed CAD drawings of the drive train, ball intake, and gear storage systems.
On Wednesday, January 25, we will take our design and prototypes to GE Aviation where students will participate in a professional design review with their engineers. The review will include a presentation on how our strategy has evolved and the current robot layout and design features
